Oakwood Junior College is operated by the Educational De- 
partment of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. 
Its purpose is to supply the twelve million colored people of this 
country with gospel workers. 

History and Location 

The School is located in a fertile valley, five miles northwest 
of Huntsville, Alabkma, eight hundred feet ab6ve sea level, 
affording a pleasant view of the city and the surrounding country. 
Across the valley, eight miles distant, Monte Sano (1700 feet) 
appears against the eastern sky. The distance from the city is a 
favorable feature in the location of the institution, it being near 
enough for mail and other accommodations and at the same time 
removed from the allurements and temptations of the city. 

This site was chosen in 1896 by Elders 0. A. Olsen and G. A. 
Irwin, acting for the General Conference of Seventh-day Ad- 
ventists. The choice was made after a thorough investigation of 
many places in this part of the South. The location is a healthful 
one. The air is generally light and balmy, and there is an unusually 
large number of sunny days in the year. 

The farm on which the School is situated comprises a tract of 
896 acres. A beautiful drive leads to the campus around which 
the eight main buildings of the School are located in a circular 
form. This spot was formerly covered with giant oaks of a century's 
growth, but because of decay these are now being gradually re- 
placed with walnut, maple, and other beautiful trees. Flowers and 
shrubbery, adapted to the climate and well selected for the seasons, 
form an almost unbroken series of bloom and fragrance. 

How TO Reach the School 

Huntsville is situated at the junction of the Chattanooga and 
Memphis division of the Southern Railroad, and the Decherd, 
Elora, Huntsville and Gadsen branch of the Nashville, Chat- 
tanooga and St. Louis Railroad. The place is easy of access from 
all points. Our School being located five miles from the city, it is 
necessary that students, before leaving home for school, write to 
us, stating the time they may be expected to arrive at Huntsville. 

All incoming students should plan to arrive in the daytime, if 

Students reaching Huntsville and failing to find anyone at the 
station to meet them should call up the School over telephone No. 


3802, and a conveyance will be sent. Students should remain at the 
station where they can be easily found. 

Students Wanted 

The School is open to worthy persons of both sexes who come 
for the purpose of doing earnest, faithful work. The School believes 
in religious liberty, and no religious test is applied. All persons 
must be of upright moral character and whether students make any 
profession of religion or not, all will be expected to reverence and 
respect the word of God and to observe the regulations of the 
School. Their matriculation is considered by the management as a 
contract, or agreement, to abide by the regulations and to have 
their conduct correspond with the spirit of the institution. 

Those who have little desire to study, who are careless in their 
deportment and association, will not be knowingly admitted or 

Our application blank requires that students unknown to the 
institution furnish recommendations of good moral character and 
sound health. 

Applicants should be at least fifteen years of age, and students 
planning to work a considerable portion of their way, unless very 
well qualified, should be older. 

Married Students 

Oakwood has always endeavored to care for a limited number 
of married students who come to attend school. In so doing the 
institution has sought to make these couples as comfortable as 
possible. The number of homes that the School has been able to 
devote to married students is necessarily very small. Couples who 
contemplate coming to Oakwood must first correspond with the 

Those who are accommodated in this way are expected to 
conform to the general rules that govern other students in regard 
to conduct, attendance upon services, etc. They will be expected 
to co-operate with the institution in every way, and any breach 
of conduct on thteir part will call for the same discipline that applies 
to other students. 


It is distinctly understood that every student who presents 
himself for admission to the School thereby pledges himself to 
observe all its regulations, whether printed in the Catalogue or 
Student's Manual or announced by the faculty. If this pledge is 
broken, it is understood that by such infraction he forfeits his 
right to membership, and if longer retained, it is only by the for- 
bearance of the board and the faculty. It is also part of the 
student's contract that he will, to the best of his ability, perform 
all duties assigned. 


General Regulations 

Years of experience have proved the wisdom of the following 
regulations, and all students will be asked to abide by them. 

The School exercises its right of full control over any car which 
a student keeps on the school premises; accordingly all car keys 
must be deposited in the business office upon arrival. 

In no case must a student leave home to attend Oakwood 
without first making application and having the same accepted. 
Regular attendance at all school exercises is expected of every 
student. The student is held responsible to the instructor for 
absence from class, to the President for absence from chapel 
exercises, to those in charge for absence from roll call, and to the 
home management for absence from Sabbath school, church 
service and worship. Each excuse must be signed by Dean, parent, 
or guardian. Excuses will be granted for unavoidable absences, 
such as sickness or work assigned by the head of a department. 

Absences and tardinesses in any class to the amount of fifteen 
per cent will deprive the student of his grades, unless by special 
action of the classification committee. 

Permission for absence from the School must be obtained from 
the President, who may first require a written statement from 
parent or guardian. 

Students must abstain from disorderly behavior, from un- 
becoming la;iiguage, from visiting billiard rooms or gambling places, 
from the use of toba^cco, from card playing, and from having or 
reading pernicious literature. 

Attendance at social gatherings will be permitted only upon 
approval of the President, and those arranging for such gatherings 
should previously confer with him. Requests for all such gatherings 
must be submitted forty-eight hours before the proposed time. 
The names of those desiring to participate should be submitted 
except in cases where general permission is given. 

Separate strolling grounds are arranged for the boys and for 
the girls, and permission must be obtained from the Dean by those 
desiring to pass beyond the limits of these grounds. 

A friendly social intercourse between young men and young 
women in the school activities, in the dining room, and at social 
gatherings is encouraged; but improper association, such as 
sentimentalism, flirtation, courtship, and strolling about the 
campus or elsewhere, cannot be permitted. 

-< 9 15 • 

Students are urged to write regularly to their home relatives, 
but other social correspondence is discouraged, since it too often 
has a detrimental effect on the progress of the student. 

Experience has taught us that eating outside the dining room 
is detrimental to the health of our students; therefore we request 
that no food other than fresh fruit be sent to them, as they will 
not be permitted to have such food in their rooms except as pro- 
vided for in the Studenfs Manual. 

Letters should not be placed in packages, provision being made 
for them in first class mail. All letters and telegrams should be 
sent in care of the School to insure delivery. 

Students attending Oakwood have no use for weapons of any 
kind, and firearms are not allowed in the building. 

No student may receive private lessons or engage in teaching 
without the permission of the faculty. 

Regulations made by the faculty and announced to the students 
have the same force as those printed in the Catalogue or the 
Students Manual. 


Special care is taken to make the home life attractive and 
efficient in the cultivation of those habits of life and graces of 
character which distinguish the refined, Christian man or woman, 

Students living in the home are required to care for their own 

Students must not visit one another's rooms during study hours 
except in cases of necessity and then only upon permission of the 
one in charge. 

Students are required to attend morning and evening devotional 
exercises. Promptness and regularity must be observed in the 
home as well as in school duties. Those in charge of the home will 
therefore require reasonable excuses for all cases of absence and 

The school homes are considered private, not public buildings. 
Those wishing to visit students in the homes will kindly ring the 
bell and be admitted by the one in charge. 

It is not expected that students will absent themselves from 
the home buildings after dark without permission from the one in 

All lights are to be extinguished promptly when the retiring 
signal is given, and silence must prevail. 

No student is expected to leave the campus without proper 
arrangement with the Dean in charge of the home and the 

Students are expected to deport themselves in such a way on the 
Sabbath as will be in harmony with the day and to attend Sabbath 

-4 10 >• 

school and public worship. Students are expected to avoid making 
or receiving calls on the Sabbath. 

When necessary, students are permitted to go to town, but no 
oftener than once a week. 

What to Bring 

Students should bring work clothes, a pillow, two pillowslips, 
four towels, two napkins, a table cover, sufficient bedding for one, 
a laundry bag, and toilet essentials including tooth brush. The 
School fits up its rooms only with furniture and with mattresses 
on the beds. Those desiring covering or linen spreads for furniture 
or rugs for the floor must bring the same with them. 

Bedding and Laundry 

Each girl must provide herself with three sheets and bedding 
enough for a single three-foot bed. 

Boys must provide themselves each with three sheets and bed- 
ding for a regular single bed. 

All articles to be sent to the laundry must be plainly marked with 
indelible ink. 


"No education can be complete that does not teach right 
principles of dress. Without such teaching the work of education 
is too often retarded and perverted. Love of dress and devotion 
to fashion are among the teacher's most formidable rivals and most 
effective hindrances." — " Education,^^ p. 2^6. 

"Lead the youth to see that in dress, as in diet, plain living is 
indispensable to high thinking. ... A refined taste, a cultivated 
mind, will be revealed in the choice of simple and appropriate 
attire.''— "Education/' p. 248. 

"Self-denial in dress is a part of our Christian duty. To dress 
plainly, and abstain from display of jewelry and ornaments of every 
kind is in keeping with our faith." — "Testimonies," Vol. Ill, p. 366. 

In harmony with these statements, the Educational Depart- 
ment of the General Conference passed the following recommenda- 

"Whereas, The principles of healthful, appropriate, modest 
dress are laid down for us in the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy, 
we recommend, That our schools teach our young people to dress 
tastily, healthfully, modestly, and economically." 

With these principles and actions as a basis, Oakwood stands 
for the following requirements: 


Because of the extra cost of laundering fine fa^brics, we urge 
that all clothing be made very plain and of serviceable material. 

■<< 11 Ii=" 


Every girl on entering school should be provided with at least 
one uniform, and two extra middy blouses, this uniform to consist 
of navy blue plaited serge skirt and white middy blouse. Blouses 
should be made of Indian Head linen or similar material. This 
uniform is to be worn on Sabbath, on special occasions, and at 
formal gatherings. 

Each girl should be provided with plain, durable school dresses 
and substantial work clothes. Rubbers and sufficient wraps should 
be brought to guard against inclement weather and to preserve the 


The sleeves should be long enough to come to the elbow. Round 
necks should be finished not more than one inch from the base of 
the neck. When a V-shaped design is used, the finish should not be 
more than two inches below the hollow in the neck. 


Tight skirts, or those more than ten to twelve inches from the 
floor, according to the age and build of the wearer, are not in 
harmony with the standards of the school. 


No jewelry or ornaments such as bracelets, rings, necklaces, 
lockets, and fancy combs, shall be worn at any time. 


Only the following types of footwear may be worn at Oakwood : 
Shoes having military, cuban, or common sense heels and 
substantial soles. 


The hair should be plainly dressed, as extreme styles of hair 
dress, such as puffs over the ears, bobbed hair, and objectionable 
arrangements are considered contrary to the regulations. 

Young Men 

The same general principles already stated apply to the dress 
of young men. It is not in harmony with the standards of our 
school for our young men to dress in the extreme styles and latest 
fads. Loud and flashy colors in shirts, ties, and socks should not be 


A $25.00 deposit must be paid into the school when the applica- 
tion is made. This deposit cannot be used for any ©ther purpose 

-4 12 h 

except to pay the ninth school month's expense unless the student 
is not accepted or withdraws before the close of school. 

In order to begin class work the student must pay a registration 
fee of $5.00 (which includes library fee, matriculation fee, and 
lecture course fee), an infirmary fee of $3.00, and the first month's 
expense of $25.00 or $26.00. 

This means that each student must have at least $58.00 paid 
into the business office when he starts classes. 

Books must be paid for in cash. 

All remittances are to be made to Oakwood Junior College. 

General Expense 

The general expenses for the school year, not including any fees, 
are as follows: 

College $26.00 a month $234.00 a school year 

Academic 25.00 a month 225.00 a school year 

Pre-academic 25.00 a month 225.00 a school year 

These rates include room, board in the dining room, regular 
tuition (not including special fees), plain laundry. A student having 
a mixed program of college and academic will pay the regular rate 
of the group in which he is taking the major amount of his work* 

A special discount will be given when statements are paid 
within ten days after they have been issued. The discount will 
amount to $2.00 each month. 

Believing in the education of the hand as well as the mind, all 
students will be expected to do at least seven hours of manual 
labor during each week of the school year. The labor rate will be 
from eight cents to sixteen cents an hour, the same to be paid 
young men and women, and not to be based upon the nature of the 
work done, but upon the efficiency of the individual. 

A student entering late will be allowed $3.00 discount from the 
regular charge for each week missed. The entrance and medical 
fees remain the same. 

Students leaving school will receive no refund on entrance fee, 
medical fee, or special fees. A refund of $3.00 a week will be made 
on general expenses. 

Statements will be issued every month of four weeks, and 
students are expected to meet each month's bill when due. State- 
ments will show advance charges for one month, not including 
special fees, with the exception of the ninth month. 

Special Fees and Miscellaneous Expenses 

The fee for piano lessons is $2.00 a month, one lesson a week 
with daily practice period. A charge of fifty cents is made for each 
special examination. There is a fee of $1.25 for certificates and 

■4 13 >- 

$1.50 and $2.00 for diplomas. Typewriting, $6.00 a year. College 
Chemistry and Academic Biology, $6.00 a year. Hydrotherapy and 
Nursing, $2.00 a year. Agriculture, $1.00 a year. Chorus, $1.00 a 
year. Orchestra, $1.50 a year. General Science, $3.00 a year. Each 
dormitory student is charged $1.00 for his key; this will be re- 
funded to him upon his departure, providing his room is left in 
order, key returned, and his account paid. 

On Septermber 9 and 10 students and baggage will be conveyed 
from Huntsville to Oakwood, and on May 17, 18, and 19 they will 
be taken to Huntsville, free of charge. But for special trips during 
the year, a charge will be made. 

The school store, handling school books, stationery, toilet 
articles, and the like, is operated on a strictly cash basis where 
students are concerned. 

The student is responsible for breakage and damage to property. 

Working for Expenses 

Students who are unable to pay the major part of their school 
expenses in cash should make definite arrangements with the 
management as to the amount of money that will be available and 
the amount of work that will be necessary to balance their ac- 
counts. No student should come without having made such ar- 
rangements. The demand for labor is so great that the School will 
be able to furnish work to only a limited number of such students. 

Labor Credits 
In case a student withdraws from school having a labor credit, 
such credit is not payable in cash but may be transferred only to 
relatives unless by special permission of the Executive Board. 
Such credits may be turned over to the Student Aid Fund at the 
school and the administration will give such credits to the students 
they think most worthy. 

Tuition Rates for Outside Students 
For students living in the community and not residing in the 
school homes, the rate of tuition a month is $6.00 for college 
students, and $5.00 for academic students. Students having a 
mixed program of college and academic subjects will pay the 
regular rate of the group in which they take the major part of 
their work. 

There will be an entrance fee of $5.00 for outside students in 
the seventh grade and above, and a medical fee of $1.00 which 
includes only one physical examination upon entrance. 

Tuition for Grades One to Six 
The tuition for grades 1 to 4 is $1.00 a month; for grades 5 and 
6, $1.50 a month; for grades 7 and 8, $2.00 a month. These rates 
do not apply to matured students who are in the school home. 

< 14 P- 

In families where three or more children attend the grade school, 
the first two in the highest grades will be charged full tuition 
and the third highest will be charged half tuition. If there are 
more than three from a family, the first three will be charged as 
above stated and the others will receive free tuition. This applies 
only to grades one to eight. 

The Children's Home 

In former years the school has maintained an orphanage, but 
this proved to be a financial burden, therefore it has been aban- 
doned. However, this institution does operate a children's home 
at present. The expense for accommodation in this home is 
$12.00 a month for board and room. Tuition plus books and other 
incidentals is extra. Before students can be admitted to this 
home, applicants must send a deposit of $25.00 plus the first 
month's expense. Those desiring admittance must first make 
proper arrangements with the management. 


The College is glad to welcome its visitors and will be pleased 
to furnish lodging free of charge. The Boarding Club will be glad 
to furnish board on the American plan at the rate of 25 cents a meal. 

Description of Studies 


As a means to an education in its highest and noblest aspect, 
the Book of God stands without a rival. In whatever light viewed, 
this must be the conclusion of all candid minds. 

The Word is to be the chief study in all our schools. ''Heart 
and mind are to be trained to preserve their purity by receiving 
daily supplies from the fountain of eternal truth. The education 
gained from a study of God's word will enlarge the narrow con- 
fines of human scholarship, and present before the mind a far 
deeper knowledge to be obtained through a vital connection with 
God. It will bring every student who is a doer of the word into a 
broader field of thought, and secure to him a wealth of learning 
that is imperishable." — '^ Counsels to Teachers,^' p. 13. 

"The Bible is the best book in the world for giving intellectual 
culture. Its study taxes the mind, strengthens the memory, arid 
sharpens the intellect more than the study of all the subjects that 
human philosophy embraces. The great themes which it presents, 
the dignified simplicity with which these themes are handled, the 
light which is shed upon the great problems of fife, bring strengtik 
and vigor to the understanding." — ^^ Gospel TForfcers," p. 100. < 

-4 15 >:• 

Bible Survey 

This course embraces (1) "The Ancestry of Our English Bible," 
tracing the way by which the messages contained in the original 
autographs have come down through many translations to their 
much-prized expression in the King James and the later English 
versions; (2) "The Canon of Holy Scriptures/' dealing with the 
question which this title suggests: How and when was the scope 
and content of our modern Bible finally determined; (3) "A Survey 
of the Book," to discover the unity of the Scriptures, the organiza- 
tion of matter that constitutes this collection of parts one indivisi- 
ble whole, and the covergence of the wide range of its varied literary 
parts into the message we all recognize as the everlasting gospel; 
also a survey study of each book in the divine library as to its 
content, organization, and analysis. Six hours 

Advanced Doctrines 

This is an advanced course in Christian doctrines designed 
especially for workers. Besides the fundamental doctrines of the 
Christian religion, a more critical study will be made of the leading 
points of doctrine held by Seventh-day Adventists. Six hours 

Daniel and The Revelation 

This course takes up a verse-by-verse study of the books of 
Daniel and The Revelation. They are studied in the light of their 
significance to us at the present time. Six hours 

Homiletics I 

This course will be introduced by "Ideals of the Ministry" and 
"Gospel Workers," by Mrs. E. G. White. Among other things the 
student will be expected to prepare six discourses, some for the 
ministerial seminar and some for delivery before the class. 

Special Arrangements for Young Women 

The foregoing textbook work, combined with class Bible read- 
ings and practical field work during the winter, makes this an 
ideal course for Bible workers. Eight Bible readings and seminar 
attendance required. Six hours 

Homiletics II 

This course is a study of the sequence and logic of subjects, the 
scientific arrangement of the points of a discourse, the principles of 
effective delivery, and the methods of conducting an interest and 
bringing people to a decision. Puzzling questions and difficult texts 
are also considered. Four hours 

Old Testament History 

The classes in Old Testament History are supposed to gain a 
clear and comprehensive knowledge of the chief events and 
biographies of the Old Testament in a chronological order, and to 
understand something of their relation to, and bearing on, the 
New Testament. One unit 

Denominational History 

Under this topic is taught the rise and progress of the great 
Second Advent Movement. The subject includes a brief history 
of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. One-half unit 

The Spirit of Prophecy 

Of all subjects taught in our schools this is one of the most im- 
portant, and should receive a prominent place in daily studies. 
The student of this subject should make himself familiar with the 
teachings of the Scriptures in reference to the place of this gift in 
the church, and how the same has been confirmed to the remnant 
of God^s people in these last days of earth's history. One-half unit 

Early Church History 

A study of the whole manifestation of God in Christ. Our 
Saviour's life, work, and teachings. "Desire of Ages" is read in 
connection with the class study. One unit 

Bible Doctrines 

A systematic study of the teachings of the Bible. The students 
are also drilled in their Bible studies so that they may present what 
they have learned to others. One unit 


College Rhetoric 

Prerequisite: Three years of high-school English. This course 
will be devoted to a study of the organization of material and the 
modes of paragraph development, followed by special work in 
narration, exposition, and argumentation. Outside reading with 
reports will be required. Six hours 

English Grammar Review 

This is a non-credit course required of all Freshmen English 
students who are delinquent in a knowledge of fundamental 

Survey of English Literature 

A study of the types and masterpieces of English Literature and 
the historical background which produced them. This course 

-< 17 {5- 

provides an excellent base for the more intensive period courses in 
literature to be studied later. An evaluation is made of the great 
literary productions in the light of Christian ideals. Six hours 


Practical study in the newspaper and magazine field, varying 
from year to year as the interest and needs of the class may de- 
termine. The course is sufficiently flexible to afford help to in- 
dividuals interested in modern tendencies in journalism, advertis- 
ing history, magazine writing, directing high-school publications, 
etc. Credit is given according to the amount of work done in the 
course and on current college publications. A limited number of 
auditors may be admitted. College Rhetoric is a prerequisite. 

Two hours 
Public Speaking 

Textbook work is supplemented with actual experiences in the 
delivery of various forms of public addresses. Practice is given 
in the vocal interpretation of literature, in reasearch and in arrange-

of "unknowns" are submitted to him for analysis. A brief survey 
of the field of organic compounds is also taken. Three hours 
lectures and four hours laboratory each week. Eight hours 

General Science 

This is a survey of natural phenomena. 'It aims to give an idea 
of what science includes in its realm rather than an exhaustive 
treatment of any branch of the subject. One unit 


The course in Biology is primarily a course in pure science and 
includes a study of the leading divisions in the animal and plant 
kingdoms. An intensive study is to be made of typical representa- 
tives, and a more general study of related forms, with a view to 
discovering the chief characteristics of each division. Extensive 
experimental and microscopic work is done in the laboratory. The 
adaptation of plants and animals to their surroundings is stressed 
throughout the course. One unit

graphical representation, linear systems, square root, radicals, 
quadratic equations, ratio and proportion. The practical applica- 
tions of algebra in solving useful problems is a valuable part of this 
course. , The completion of eighth grade arithmetic is a prerequisite. 

One unit 
Plane Geometry 

Prerequisite, algebra. The topics studied in this course are 
rectilinear figures, the circle, proportion, similar polygons, areas, 
and regular polygons. Geometry serves to give to the student an 
insight into deductive reasoning, helps him to know what it means 
to prove a statement, and cultivates in him habits of independent 
investigation. Each student is required to solve at least four 
hundred original problems during the course. One unit 

College Normal Course 

Any one finishing this course as outlined, will be granted the 
Advanced Normal diploma, and upon recommendation of the 
Normal Director, will receive from the Union Conference a pro- 
fessional certificate good for five years following its issuance. 
Graduates holding these diplomas and certificates may, after three 
years of successful teaching, on recommendation of the Union 
Conference Secretary in whose territory the teaching has been 
performed, receive a teacher's life certificate from the General 
Conference Department of Education signed by the Secretary of 
the Department and sealed with a special Department seal, in 
harmony with the action of the Department. 

The need of better trained teachers for our elementary schools 
and academies and the calls for efficient teachers in the mission 
fields emphasize the necessity of giving a normal training course 
in our schools. 

"To the teacher is committed a most important work — a work 
upon which he should not enter without careful and thorough 
preparation.^' The curriculum for normal training offers two years 
of College Normal. 

Proficiency in the art of teaching is dependent upon a thorough 
mastery of subject matter, a clear conception of methods, devices 
for imparting knowledge, and an intelligent study of them in 
practical operation.

The Teaching of Agriculture and Gardening 

No line of manual training is of more value than agriculture. 
A greater effort should be made to create and encourage an interest 
in agricultural pursuits. It is the object of this course to awaken 
an interest in gardening and agriculture that will be of practical 
and cultural value.

Vocational Training 

Educational institutions everywhere are coming to realize that 
a knowledge of books alone is not sufficient, and are placing in their 
courses of study vocational training subjects, which will fit the 
student for some practical place in life. The educational depart- 
ment has arranged for such subjects in both Academic and Junior 
College departments. These subjects will he required for gradua- 
tion. The custom of granting certificates is now discontinued as all 
students will receive institutional credits for all studies pursued in 
these lines. These vocational training studies will consist of both 
theory and practice. 

For the help of both the institution and the students, the School 
maintains and operates a line of industries. More than two hun- 
dred acres of our land is cultivated in farm and garden, providing 
for school consumption such things as can be grown in our latitude 

4 24 J=- 


and furnishing employment for students who desire to work 
part of their way through school. The School also operates its own 
blacksmith shop, printing office, saw mill, cannery, apiary, dairy, 
laundry, and sanitarium. The work in these departments is 
carried on in an educational way. 


The work of these grades is more intensive than that done in 
the ninth grade. It is intended to give to those who elect these 
courses a practical knowledge of the leading phases of agriculture. 

Agriculture I 

The first quarter will be given to the study of leading field 
crops, the second quarter to animal husbandry, and the third 
quarter to principles of plant growth or agricultural botany. 

One unit 
Agriculture II 

The subject matter of this course includes poultry husbandry, 
dairying, and horticulture, each one quarter. In addition to the 
study of the various texts, laboratory work of a practical as well 
as a technical nature will be given on which the student must take 
notes. One unit 

Home Economics I 

In this subject we cover a different phase of home life each 
quarter, the first quarter being given over to home management, 
the second quarter to cooking, and the third quarter to sewing. 

One unit 

Prerequisite, elementary woodwork. This course is to be some- 
what of a combination of the principles and practices of both 
cabinet and carpentry work. It is designed to give the student a 
practical working knowledge of jobs with which he will meet in 
his everyday life. This course will continue three quarters, meeting 
four times a week, two-hour periods. One unit 

Carpentry and Building 

This course will include saw milling, building, carpentry, and 
repair work. Those desiring this course will be expected to furnish 
most of their tools. One unit 

Cabinet Work 

Since it has been our policy as far as possible to provide the 
necessities in our school rooms and also part of the dormitory 
furniture, we are offering a course in cabinet work. We have been 
successful in securing the services of a practical cabinetmaker. 

One unit 


This course offers a general survey of the field of typography, 
with a practical study of plain type-setting, job composition, 
imposition, press work, and care of machinery. This study, sup- 
plemented with practice work in our printshop, is designed to 
make one a practical, all-round printer. Prerequisites for this 
subject are : a fair knowledge of English grammar and composition, 
studiousness, and mechanical ability. One unit 

Typewriting I 

The Underwood typewriter is the machine used. "Gregg's 
Rational Typewriting, Revised Edition," is the text used, from 
which assigned lessons will be prepared and handed in for correc- 
tion. Speed tests will be given from standard tests, together with 
drill in addressing envelopes, making of carbon copies, writing 
simple business letters, and care of the machine. 

A speed of thirty net words a minute for fifteen consecutive 
minutes must be attained for one-half unit of credit. 

A speed of forty net words a minute for fifteen consecutive 
minutes is required for one unit of credit. 

Typewriting II 

Advanced drill work is required in this course, with Type- 
writing I as a prerequisite, together with additional letter-writing 
practice and efficiency methods. 

A speed of sixty net words a minute for fifteen consecutive 
minutes is required. 


Music, one of God's greatest and most powerful gifts to man 
speaks through birds, insects, the crash of waters, the sighing winds 
and is even heard amid the confusion of noisy cities by the ever- 
listening soul. It has been a universal language from ancient times 
understood and appreciated by all. It has been developed to such 
an extent that every important event of life has its own expression 
or its own setting in appropriate music. 


The piano, a fundamental instrument, offers to the student a 
broad field of study. The elementary work given in this course 
consists of special finger exercises, scale formation, rudiments of 
music and easy pieces. For intermediate work, technical exercises, 
scales, arpeggios selections from Duvernoy, Czerny, Bertini, and 
others, as well as pieces of moderate difficulty suited to the needs 
of the pupil are given. 

Those who are working to complete our piano course will be 
given special technical exercises, octave studies, studies from 

-4. 26 >•• 

Moscheles, Czerny, preludes, and fugues by Bach, Beethoven 
sonatas, selections from Chopin, Schumann, Schubert, Liszt, 
Henselt, Raff, modern composers and others. Those who are work- 
ing toward graduation from this course will give special attention 
to memorizing and ensemble playing. A graduation recital is 
required. Others who study the piano will be given opportunity 
for public appearance as soon as they become sufficiently advanced, 
but a completion of the course requires several years in most cases. 
Practice periods are assigned and regular lessons are given. 

In this course the leading features of technical drill are correct 
use of the breath, intonation, attack, legato, accent, phrasing, and 
enunciation. A musicianly style of singing with a thorough apprecia- 
tion of the best works of the masters will be cultivated. Exercises 
and studies together with songs from well-known song writers will 
be used. Voice trial auditions are granted without charge. 


Technical material used in this course is devised by violinists 
and instructors of established reputation and authority. 

Compositions that will increase one's appreciation for good 
violin literature are used. Advanced studies will also be given. 

Choir — Chorus 

This organization enjoys favorable comment from all who have 
heard it. Special attention is given to Negro Spirituals, in their 
original and classical forms, and standard A Capella works. Regular 
rehearsals are conducted and several public appearances are made 
during the year. 


Those who are affiliated with this organization are developing 
skill and the orchestra is improving each year. Standard music 
within the scope of the player's ability is used. The organization 
meets regularly for rehearsals and appears in public during the year. 

TT Courses in Music Theory 


During the first year, attention is given to simple triads and 
their inversions, rules of part writing, cadences, the dominant 
seventh chord, its inversions and resolutions, and exercises in 
figured bass. Two semesters. Four hours 

Advanced work in harmony is also offered. 

History of Music

theoretical analysis of chorals, choruses, motets, oratorios, sonatas, 
and cantatas. First semester. Two hours 

Anatomy and Hygiene 

For some time we have been beset with requests from students 
for work in medical missionary lines. We have thought for years 
that it should be an essential in every course. A few changes in our 
courses of study have enabled us to offer these necessary topics. 
Students at Oakwood have an excellent opportunity of receiving 
this training in connection with our Sanitarium. Thus the in- 
struction will be both theoretical and practical. 


This course comprises a careful study of the normal functions 
of the body. It embraces the topics of muscles, nervous system, 
circulation, respiration, digestion, excretion, foods, nutrition, 
personal hygiene, and the laws of health. The class work is sup- 
plemented by laboratory experiments. One-half unit 

Hygiene and Sanitation 

Every worker who trains for public service should have a 
practical knowledge of these fundamentals. The increasing 
prevalence of sickness and disease makes it essential that all be 
familiar with the principles that underlie these important subjects. 

One-half unit 

Home Nursing and Simple Treatments 

Every young person should have some knowledge of the methods 
used in caring for the sick and of the first-aid treatments required 
in common emergencies. This course includes, beside simple 
hydrotherapy procedure and care of helpless patients, care of 
contagious diseases, and instruction in recognition of symptoms of 
common diseases [and their treatment. We are especially fortunate 
in having the treatment rooms of the Sanitarium for our laboratory 
work in this class. One unit 

-4 28 >•• 


The school year consists of thirty-six weeks, being divided into 
periods of six weeks. The class periods are one hour in length. 
Tests are given at the close of each period. At the close of each 
semester, examination papers are filed for reference. Semester 
grades are entered in the books as permanent records, and grades 
are passed to the students. 

When matriculating, each student will be expected to arrange 
a personal daily program accounting for all his waking hours. A 
copy of this must be filed with the President. 

All students should plan to be at Oakwood at the opening of 
school, as late registration and examinations will call for extra 
fees. Those registering late will be permitted to take work in 
proportion to the part of the school year that remains. Arrange- 
ment for special examinations must be made with the classification 
committee, who will require a receipt from the treasurer. 

Students not able to pass the entrance examinations for the 
ninth grade will be classified in the grammar department. 

Classes will be formed only when there is sufficient number to 

Four and one-half units constitute full work in the Academy, 
and thirty-two hours in the College. No student will be allowed 
to take more except by permission of the faculty, request and rea- 
son having been expressed in writing. 

Each student is required to take one of the following drills 
each year: Spelling, reading, sight singing, penmanship. Examina- 
tions in each will be required at the close of the academic course 
to ascertain whether the work has been completed in all these arts. 

No conditional or incomplete grade will go on permanent 
record. If a student fails to pass in one of his classes, he has one 
period from the close of the class to make up his "condition" or 
''incomplete" grade. 

Students having an incomplete or condition in any subject 
will not receive a grade above ''C" when the work is made up and 
the incomplete or condition removed. 

Graduation Requirements 
For graduation from the Academic Course, 16 units are required 
in addition to the completion of the work in the Pre-academic 
Department; from Junior College, 64 semester hours. In the 
Academic Course, one study four times a week for one year 
constitutes a unit of work. This is on the basis that each period 
of recitation continues for one hour. It is also understood that one 
and one-fourth hours of preparation must precede recitation. In 
the Junior College one course meeting one hour a week for 18 
weeks constitutes a semester hour. 

-4 29 >• 

Those expecting to graduate from any course should see the 
Committee on Graduation early in the year and check up their 
work. No individual should expect to graduate from any course 
without at least one year's residence work. 

Diplomas will be granted those completing Junior College 
and Academic courses. Others will receive certificates. 

The extension work of the Oakwood Junior College is done by 
the Home Study Institute of Takoma Park, Washington, D. C. 
For any courses our students may take in that school during the 
summer vacation or at any other times, full credit will be given by 
our registration committee. 

For graduation the general average must not be less than 
eighty-five per cent nor below seventy-five per cent in any separate 
topic for any single examination. A percentage of eighty-five is 
required in reading, penmanship, spelling, and sight singing, but 
these drills do not entitle a student to academic credit. 

It is necessary also for graduation to have at least as many 
quality points as units or semester hours required in the course 
being completed. These quality points are given as follows: a 
grade of "A," 3 quality points; a grade of ''B," 2 quality points; a 
grade of "C," 1 quality point; a grade of "D," no quality points.
